When you’re a massage therapist, you should constantly market yourself to attract new clients and keep the ones you’ve got. Every client you treat is a potential source of new business. If a client likes the massage therapy you’ve delivered, he or she can send new customers your way. Making sure you present yourself well to every client, both in terms of your own presentation and the presentation of your workspace, will help you grow your business. Here are a few reasons why the right presentation matters in massage therapy:
Clients can’t enjoy their massages if they aren’t relaxed. When your presentation isn’t right, a client might not let down his or her guard enough to get the full benefits of your treatment. Make sure your work clothes always look clean and fresh before every massage and that you take care to practice good personal hygiene when you treat your clients. Unless you’re massaging clients in their own homes, make sure your massage workspace is organized and clean.
A properly presented workspace is also a safe one. When you spend time cleaning your space and making sure that everything is in its place, there is less risk of things falling, clients tripping, and other hazards that could arise in a poorly maintained massage space.
When you provide relaxing, safe massage therapy for your clients, they’ll rave about your services to their friends. As these friends then become your clients, their word-of-mouth promotion will help you attract even more clients. Every time you provide a quality massage experience for a client, you are making an investment in your massage therapy business.
